December 1 Jason was in a very serious motor vehicle accident and was airlifted to the trauma centre in Newcastle, NSW.  Since then the medical team has been dealing with the numerous medical issues caused by the accident, starting with the most critical.  He will require numerous surgeries in the following weeks, a long stay in hospital and months of rehabilitation.  As the sole breadwinner, the family will need support for the physio, rehab and additional costs associated with Jason's  recovery.  At this point in time we can't estimate how long that process will take.
We thank all for their get well wishes and prayers and appreciate your support in this trying time.

Jason's spiking fever is being further investigated today by the medical team. This has delayed plans to try some actions that would support improving his breathing and lung function. We are so fortunate he is in a hospital that can provide for all his special needs in the best possible manner. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers as we continue to take it a day at a time.

The medical team are guardedly optomistic as Jason is resting and working on healing from all the surgeries. He is expected to be in ICU for the next several weeks, before transfer to ward to continue healing and rehab. Your love, positive energy and prayers are helping the family through each day.

Saturday saw Jason in the operating theatre for eight plus hours as they successfully worked through the facial reconstruction. Thankfully this is the last of the five major surgeries done in the week since the accident.
Now the hard work of healing and rehab starts.
The Donnellan family feels blessed by all of your support, positive energy and prayers.

The spinal surgery was delayed by a day, offering the chance for Jono and Abby to join Rae at the hospital and see their Dad. Short visits, interspersed with playing in the Fairy Garden, Starlight Room and Ronald MacDonald Family room and lots of hugs from Mom, and extended family at the hospital helped the kids get through the first visits to the ICU.
The spinal surgery did take place on Thursday afternoon and checked another of the list of work to be done.
Jason's medical team is pleased with his progress.
